In fact, Mourinho’s self-destruction in charge of a huge club is merely history repeating itself.Writing in his Sky Sports column, Carragher said: “The last two Manchester United games I’ve seen live, in midweek in the Carabao Cup and what I saw at the weekend against West Ham, the performances were not far away from a disgrace.“What I saw at the weekend, every team will have a game like that this season, maybe two where your character and commitment get questioned. However, it might only happen once or twice a season. We’ve seen this now three or four times in 10 games under Jose Mourinho and that’s the worrying thing.

He was speaking about the players they had at Chelsea and whatever they said, those players – John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba – went with. He was saying about the difference in the players now, they think they know it all and they’ve always got an answer. So that’s really Jose speaking as well.

That’s not rocket science, I don’t even think that’s that controversial a thing to say.“The problem with that is it’s now the third time it has happened. It started at Real Madrid with Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos. When it happened at Chelsea it was Eden Hazard and other players there.

I had a conversation with Mourinho after he left Chelsea. He was manager at the Soccer Aid game, a charity game. It wasn’t just me and him so I’m not betraying confidence. There were four or five people there. The big thing he said he learnt from the Chelsea exit was that you couldn’t single out a player in a meeting in front of the other players because the players do not accept this now.“But it looks as if he has gone back to that or is still doing that at Manchester United. He’s stripped Pogba of the captaincy, which I agreed with, but it sounds like it was in front of the players. The players don’t want that now and that’s why he has lost the dressing room, and it’s not the first time.” With Zinedine Zidane seemingly set to replace him Jamie Carragher believes Jose Mourinho has lost the Manchester United dressing room in the same way he did at Real Madrid and Chelsea.The Portuguese is seemingly on the brink at Old Trafford, with Zinedine Zidane lurking ominously in the shadows.
